West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee allegedly reprimanded Director General and Inspector General of Police (DG-IGP) of Karnataka Neelamani Raju, after she was unhappy with the traffic arrangements in Bengaluru on the day of HD Kumaraswamy’s swearing-in, ANI reported, attaching a video.

According to ANI, Banerjee, who was one of the guests at Kumaraswamy’s swearing-in on Wednesday, 23 May, reportedly had to “walk a few metres” in order to reach the Vidhana Soudha, since a number of vehicles were blocking the route to the venue.

In the video, which shows her entering the venue, she can be seen unhappy with Raju. She also went on to express her discontent with the situation to former chief minister Deve Gowda and his son, Kumaraswamy.

However, after being pacified by Deve Gowda and Kumaraswamy, she proceeded towards the dais and greeted other dignitaries who were present for the oath taking ceremony.

A high-level meeting of the police officers was held on Thursday, and a report has been sent to the CM’s office.
